Postdoc Position in Theoretical Physics at University of Cambridge

University of Cambridge, UK is inviting excellent candidates to apply for a postdoctoral position in mathematics. The funds for this fellowship are available for 3 years. The deadline to apply is December 07, 2018.

We invite applications for a postdoctoral Research Associate in Theoretical Physics, funded by Professor David Tong’s Simons Investigator Award. The successful appointee would be expected to start on 1 October 2019 for three years.

Candidates should be qualified to undertake research in strongly interacting quantum theory. Possible avenues for research include topological phases of matter, supersymmetric gauge theories, holography and string theory. Other members of the group with interest in this area include Nick Dorey, Harvey Reall, Jorge Santos and David Skinner.

The successful candidate will have completed (or nearly completed) a PhD in Theoretical Physics or a closely related area prior to their appointment, and will have demonstrated a capacity to produce world-class research. Duties would include developing and conducting individual and collaborative research projects. The role holders will be expected to plan and manage their own research and administration, with guidance if required. They must be able to communicate material of a technical nature and be able to build internal and external contacts. They may be asked to assist in the supervision of student projects, the development of student research skills, provide instruction or plan/deliver seminars relating their research area.

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 3 years in the first instance.
